Its fair to say that some subjects are less willing than others to be on camera, Helen was one of those people - but totally without reason, she gave us an interesting tour of the current range of portable and NAS devices, with a glimpse into the future. We'll be seeing 1.5TB 2.5 7200 RPM drives soon which is great news - at least for us - we need lots of storage when covering shows.

Also of interest was the new Verbatim USM Portable Drives. These dont have a built in bridge but come with interchangeable cables that contain the relevant interface  (USB/FireWire/Thunderbolt). A neat idea.



Even more news...

Thats was a great piece. That is an important point about the longevity of Bluray over a Hard drive. Great news bout 2.5 inch with bigger capacity. Although a bit nervous I though she did great! Why does she keep looking off camera all the time....was it to check with the boss, the interpreter or checking no stock was getting nicked? LOL.

Nah Kev's not my boss, but he was definitely my safety blanket and I did look to him for reassurance, but after 3-4 minutes, I was much more at ease only distracted by my customers teasing me in the background! Thanks Wildman for your comment and thanks Nick for the coverage!
